Hello guys. My first post here.
I downloaded Picard mere minutes ago, so I am completely new to the app. I don’t have a large music collection, however it needs some cleaning up and sorting. I have a lot of single (EP) releases though.
I want to name my files like this:
Artist Name (&/vs Another Artist / feat. Vocalist) - Track Name (Original Mix/Artist Name Remix/or something similar – if necessary).ext
Then I want it moved to it’s appropriate Artist folder (because that’s how I search my music), and then, inside that, there should be an album name, with the year.
Example as follows, for a track named Ladyblue (Original Beat) by Airwave, released on the Ladyblue album, in 2004.
Music/Airwave/Airwave - Ladyblue (2004)/Airwave - Ladyblue (Original Beat).mp3
But sometimes the artists on an album aren’t the album artists. Example of a track called Dangerous Power by Gabriel & Dresden featuring Jan Burton, in the Kuffdam & Plant remix, on CD #4.
Music/VA/VA - A State of Trance Classics vol. 10 (2015)/CD 4/Gabriel & Dresden feat. Jan Burton - Dangerous Power (Kuffdam & Plant Remix).mp3
I think that should be the most complicated case I could think of.
However, I am completely new to Picard, even more so when it comes to scripting. For you advanced scripters it’s basically nothing.
Is there any way you could help me? Maybe some of you even name your files that way and you have the script?
Thank you very much in advance.
